Help?? Crohns & pregnancy?

I am 20 years old and have had completely regular periods since I first started.. I am on the nuvaring and still being on that have been completely regular.  I have Crohns disease and recently started having symptoms of what I thought was a flare show up.  I have been having terrible pain in my lower back, constant headaches, bloating to the point I cant button my pants, cramping in my lower abdomen, and I feel like I am going to be sick all through the day along with being irregularly tired.  I thought it was all normal until I completely skipped my period this month then I started thinking more about it.  My period last month only lasted 2 days then was just a little spotting for the last days.  Then this month its just MIA... I never started but I am having an increase in discharge and had spotting the day before my period should have started.  If anyone has any idea whats going on or if it sounds like I am preggo HELP... i have had 2 negative HPTs but just feel like something isnt right

Hi
Welcome to the MedHelp forum!
Yes, acute flare-ups of chronic diseases can delay the menstrual cycle but not skip it all together (usually). I suggest you take a blood pregnancy test which measures HCG in serum. If this too is negative then other causes of delayed or missed periods will have to be looked at such as stress whether emotional or physical (this you have), hypothyroidism, polycystic disease of the ovary, pituitary tumors secreting prolactin, anemia and poor diet, hormonal imbalance, unexplained or sudden weight gain or weight loss. You will need to consult a gynecologist for this. Take care!
